the Urd/ the Yjame

the compositional mastermind behind Slopbox, ...And Oot Jumped the Mexican, and The Bungalow of Love, and song-writer with Cursed, Plastic Spacemen, BJ Petroleum, and gLOBALmINDfUCK, the Urd is a force to be reckoned with, if not just left to do his “thang”. Sometimes the king of sped-up pop, sometimes the dark prince of slowed-down grindcore, oftentimes the chuckling jester of backwards country, the Yjame is one of the only people we have heard of who considers a microphone and two ghetto blasters ‘a multitrack recording studio. Creating works that somehow combine the eccentric prog of the seventies, the whimsical experimentia of the nineties, and the cheese and cheese of eighties pop, yet end up being something altogether different, the Urd is as at home with the phat street-politics of Public Enemy as he is with the horror-mystery funk of Goblin, as he is with the extreme drum-and-vocal-sonic-terror of DJ Carhouse.

His latest release, the Urd/Yjame Demo, is one of the most abstractly-mixed pieces of country-pop you are likely to hear.
